In these pieces by Julie Rousse the movement remains suspended between the sole coordinates of the anticipated momentary release predetermined by the advent of the inevitable breakdown of the system/machine. The sounds she produces, evoke a perpetual loosening of fixed coordinates, an incessant structural slippage under the constraints of enduring narrative duress. Under that inhumane narrative which motivates, melds and constrains every element of the societal structure the only interest is in the wholly asymmetrical redirection of reflectivity away from itself. Freedom, on the other hand, as is evinced in these pieces, lies precisely within the heart of this structure: in the inevitabilty of it's momentary break-down under the strains of it's own existential preconditions.

Beautiful abstract music
Here's some top-notch ambient music. Perhaps "ambient" isn't the right genre, but it sure feels ambient to listen to. Very subtle, very refined, very interesting. Never boring, and without ever resorting to harsh noise passages. Its a great piece of work with a unique sound - it found its way into my permanent collection right out of the gate. Five stars.
Three abstract electroacoustic pieces. A dreamlike collage of electronics, acoustic instruments/sounds, and voices (?). The track titles add to the surrealistic atmosphere:
(1) dans la soute a bagages -> "in compartment A luggage", (2) cervelle spaghetti -> "brain spaghetti", and (3) AK47, mon amour -> "AK47, my love". Entertaining and engaging listening.
[My apologies for the rough translations of the French titles into English.]
